Watch: Sky Ferreira and Ariel Pink bash, crash in 'My Molly'

It's not exactly Beyoncé shocking the world by dropping an unannounced album on iTunes.

But for fans of indie-aligned pop and rock, Sky Ferreira provided a jolt late Monday with a tweet that linked to a video featuring her and Ariel Pink performing Pink's song "My Molly."

Ferreira's collaboration with the L.A.-based eccentric -- in which they crash around a white-walled soundstage -- follows the release in October of her long-anticipated debut album, "Night Time, My Time." The video was directed by Grant Singer, who also made recent clips for the record's title track and "You're Not the One."

And "My Molly" might be the first in a series of such surprises.

"The way I look at this record is that it's more of a starting line than the finishing point," Ferreira told me recently about "Night Time, My Time." "Now that it's done, I'm like, 'OK, on to the next.'"
